AVERAGE WINNING GRADED TIMES - 2019 AND JUNE/JULY 2020



The following Table provides a means of comparing Grading times at English tracks based on CHESTER's analysis of the going adjusted winning times of Graded race winners with the related Ratings.

The Table shows:

  1. The average going adjusted winning times for each Grade
  2. The percentage of races in each Grade
  3. CHESTER's Rating for the times

Since racing resumed in June 2020 some tracks have altered their Grading bands and so the Table shows the data since the resumption of racing as well as that for 2019. When comparing both sets of data please bear in mind that for some Grades at some tracks the volume of data since racing resumed is not sufficient to provide a reliable comparison. The Table will be updated in the coming months to answer this problem.


When considering the relative Graded strength of tracks a simple comparison of winning times/Ratings by Grade can be misleading as account has to be taken of the proportion of races in the particular Grade at each track. For example, at a track staging very few A1 races the average winning time will be flattering when compared with a track staging a high proportion of A1's.

Comparing Prize money by reference to Grades can also be deceptive as the total prize money depends on the proportion of races in each Grade. . For example, almost 20% of races are Graded A1 at Romford as compared with fewer than 2% Crayford, Harlow's top Grade is A4 but the average Rating for the Grade is higher than an A1 at most other tracks. At their new circuit Towcester have yet to stage an A1 but 40% of their races are Grades A2 or A3 of a high standard
